French Onion Soup

French Onion Soup

French Onion Soup is one of those soups that I order out a lot but have never made at home.  We were having some friends over for dinner & it was chilly outside.  It seemed like the perfect time to give it a try.  It was a big hit and I’ll defiantly be making this again.
